How does a newbie find this forum?

I think @manch needs to do his magic to attract users.

I was a virgin back in 2011. I am happy this site is helpful for newbies. :smile:

Literally? :slight_smile:

Disclosures have become a joke…Just unload a lot of boiler plate scary shit on the buyer…Houses aren’t dangerous. …but mold and radon are scary…The buyer is much likely to be killed driving to too many open houses than by any thing lethal in those houses…Maybe agents should be forced to disclose that too…

Real estate virgin. Yes, literally.

Hello, there are many online sites available who will help you in buying home.

Of course there are, but a lot of people like to do things by themselves too to a certain extent. The more knowledge one possesses, the less one has to depend on others. In an umber competitive and expensive market like here in the Bay Area, it really makes sense to bone up as much as one can on real estate lingo or concepts if for any reason just to be on par with everyone else.
